Post-doctoral position on cognitive modeling at CNRS & Aix-Marseille

Applications are invited for a post-doc position on cognitive modeling
funded by a European Research Council Starting Grant led by F.-Xavier


The 5-year project LIPS examines the cognitive and neural mechanisms
involved in lexical information processing. The project combines
theoretical cognitive psychology with mental chronometry and
neurophysiological (EEG/MEG) recordings.

The person hired will be responsible for developing and implementing
quantitative models of response selection. The primary duties will
involve designing computational and statistical models and simulations
that lead to testable predictions, as well as disseminating findings
through journal articles and conference presentations.


The candidates must have (1) A PhD degree obtained in a relevant field
of research, (2) solid demonstrable scientific expertise (i.e. published
articles in international scientific journals), (3) experience in
quantitative models of cognitive processing, especially pertaining to
response selection or decision making (or other comparable models),  (4)
extensive programming skills in {R | Matlab | Python | ...}.

The ideal candidates are highly motivated and creative individuals,
capable of working independently and in groups. Previous experience with
language processing research is not a requirement, a stated interest for
language research is a plus. The working language is English.


The group offers a rich and stimulating research environment, with
strong cross-disciplinary interactions and active international
collaborations, in which the selected candidate can expect to
participate. For further information, please visit
